The National Park Service is allowing an immigration reform rally to go on as planned Tuesday on the National Mall, even though it's closed due to the federal shutdown.
Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the "Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform," confirmed that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group's rights granted by the First Amendment, the Washington Examiner reported.
Several members of Congress are expected to attend the rally, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, and Sen. Robert Menendez, New Jersey Democrat.
